The delegation framework sets out the location of authority within the University for decisions made in the University’s name and on its behalf. The delegation framework supports the governance arrangements for Council, Senate and the University Executive Board (UEB) and its sub-groups.
Within the Framework, lines of delegation are either through the line management hierarchy or operate through functional relationships where there is a senior leader with executive or management responsibility for a strategic area. Read it as a PDF Document.
